HELENA, Mont. _ A Republican lawmaker wants Montana to give more than $8 million to help build President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexican border. The state’s Democratic governor, who exploring a run for president, on Thursday quickly derided the idea. At least one other state, South Dakota, is considering voicing support for Trump’s wall. But Montana, which last year faced a massive budget shortfall, appears to be the first to propose spending its own money on the project. By Amy Beth Hanson. SENT: 410 words. AP Photos.
